I have mandrake an an ext3 partition and windows on an NTFS partition. I read somewhere that you shouldn't write anything from linux to my NTFS partition. Is it ok to copy files from the NTFS partition to my linux partition?

What I did was install windows on NTFS so that I couldn't accidentally screw it up while in linux (4 gig NTFS partition) then I made a 27.5 gig fat32 partition called share that they both can write to. 4 gigs for linux, and another 4.5 for screwing around with other distributions and BSDs et cetera.

PS Best thing I ever did too. Couldn't be happier. All me games are installed only once but playable in both - in /home/static AND in MY Documents I have links to /share/music (or F:[share]music if you prefer) where I keep all my mp3's, etc...
